This year marks our 35th anniversary of inspiring you to Do Something Creative Every Day! In honor of our milestone moment, we’ve recently redesigned PaperSource.com, making it easier for you explore our brand online.
Since butterflies are the perfect metaphor for profound change in one’s life, moving from one chapter to the next, we’ve been featuring fine paper butterflies in an array of our DIYs lately.
With the Royal Wedding almost upon us, we’re dusting off our fascinators (or making paper ones at our new Mini Workshop) and starting the kettle to celebrate the newest Royal Couple from across the pond. Of course we have to celebrate Meghan Markel and Prince Harry’s wedding in true Paper Source fashion, though, with a Royal Wedding Watch party fit for nobility.
In honor of National Letter Writing Month, we’re putting the spotlight on the beauty of a handwritten letter. When you take the time to craft a handwritten letter, the recipient feels special and loved, something that royal bride-to-be Meghan Markle agrees with.
As you might have read in a recent People magazine article, Markle was once part of the Paper Source family, working as a calligrapher at our Beverly Hills location from 2004-2005. Markle’s love for a nice handwritten letter, and her impeccable penmanship, made her a perfect fit for the job.
Summer break is just around the corner. Before trading in the backpack for a beach tote, show an A+ teacher your appreciation with a thoughtful gift – Paper Source has got you covered with items for teachers of any grade, along with wrapping and DIY tips to add a meaningful touch to your gift.

When Easter hops around, we love curating special baskets for everyone in the family, especially if it means a cute theme and lots of goodies to complement it! As we got a head start on this year’s baskets, we thought why don’t we add a personal touch and build a basket – literally. The result is a cute woven basket, perfect for housing Easter goodies or to serve as a carrier for the Easter egg hunt. Find the how-to below!
At Paper Source, we love being organized almost as much as we love crafting, so when we heard about creative journaling, we were immediately on board! It can be intimidating, especially when you see how much detail goes into creating some of these journals, but not to worry, we’re here to give some great tips and tricks to get you started.
Each year we look for meaningful ways to thank our moms for bringing us into this world. One of the most special ways to show gratitude is with a thoughtful, handmade gift. This year, our in-house crafting expert, Rebecca, created a memory box for her mom to thank her. Memory boxes make a lovely gift for a variety of occasions beyond Mother’s Day, such as graduation and first anniversaries – or are even a great way to put together an inspiration board for yourself! Create your own with these how-to steps and share your box with us on Instagram with the hashtag #PSThanksMom.
